[The news release announcing the winners may be viewed HERE]

In early December, Wrecking Corp, which was contracted to demolish the landmark Blackies restaurant, welcomed the winners of its contest for the best stories about Blackies House of Beef, Blackies, the Déjà vu Lounge, or Lulu's. At a brunch at the Wrecking Corp offices, winners received their commemorative bricks from Wrecking Corp EVP Terry Anderson and Lulu Auger, Blackies widow. Mrs. Auger also gave each winner an autographed copy of her book, "My Life with Blackie the Greek."
